        1. Sure – they are chocolate kids: the more chocolate, the better. Even my challahs come with chocolate chips. And, since it’s the first Shabbat after Pesach, I am making a Shlissel Challah (will post it some time today). My grandson’s birthday is mamash on Shabbat, so I hope he gets the piece with the key. These are our adopted son’s kids.

        2. Wow; I’ve never known anyone who actually makes that kind of challah – I’ve only read about it. You never fail to amaze, Dolly.

        3. Yes, but this also leads to excuses, as it does in my case. If everything I do is more than I once did, then I can permit myself not to do everything because (which is exactly how I think about it, for better or worse)

        4. Every Baal Teshuva proceeds in steps. Excuses are pretty normal. Eventually, little by little, one internalizes the true meaning of every MItzvah. There is no need to rush, David; H-shem has unlimited time.
          Do you know how Jews came to America through Ellis Island? Yidl by yidl (it’s not my joke; I believe it’s Jackie Mason’s).

    1. πŸ˜€ you know, Michele, I’ve really started thinking seriously about which photos I use & how they shape the image of the poem – it’s a bit of art in and of itself…

      1. Very good, yes, photos do add more layers to our artistic poetic stories. πŸ’– Don’t take it too seriously though… have fun with it! πŸ˜‰
